My husband and I hired Jen to prepare a "heavy apps" cocktail party for about 20 people. It (and she) was incredible! Her food was impeccable, flavor and presentation couldn't be beat. My personal favorites were her chicken pot pie cupcakes and shrimp scampi skewers. Lots of options and trust us, no one left hungry! We will absolutely have Jen back and I have given her information to a couple of my guests for their future parties. Honestly, you won't be disappointed!

Daniel & his team made it possible for us to host the party we all want to create for our friends & family. An evening cocktail party followed by dinner, where every single dish was exemplary and relished by all. The feast followed our guests with no fuss as dishes were relocated in response to the beautiful weather making it possible for the party to spill outdoors. Their service was extraordinary but the food had everyone wanting more.

Extremely professional, never had to ask for next course, very clean which is impressive since we did have barbecue meatballs, no sloppy messes. We have hot appetizers through out the party (2hrs.). As for the future, COME BACK!

William catered our family style wedding reception for 170 people at a private venue and we could not be happier. Not only is the food he cooks amazing, the service he provides is second to none. Prior to reaching out to William, we had been working with another larger, better known, and well-reviewed catering company. They turned out to be entirely unhelpful, unwilling to offer alternatives to help keep our budget manageable and did not take kindly to any requests outside their standard menu and offerings. After eating the deposit on our first caterer, we gave William a call and he provided the exact opposite experience. From our first phone call until after the event was over, he was wonderful to work with. He helped us with crafting a menu, determining alcohol volume (we had a backyard wedding), cocktail and reception layout, and even timeline. He was always very quick to respond, made extremely helpful suggestions, worked around our schedules (and held the tasting in our apartment), accommodated changes to dishes to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, provided more food (and rentals!) for far less money than other caterers we assessed, and had an extremely professional service staff. After it was all over, he put some leftover food in our fridge and my wife and I were able to enjoy it again for dinner the following night with a bottle of champagne. If you're looking for a caterer that really cares not only about the food that he cooks but also about you and making your event amazing, you've already found him.

My company has used Hostess Catering for dinner 4 nights a week for over year. They are flexible, professional, creative and dependable. It's very hard to satisfy a large group every night with many different tastes, diets and eating habits. These ladies always come up with a fun menu every week that appeals to meat lovers and vegetarians. Hostess even catered our Holiday Party in December of 2014 and did all the planning from menus to table settings to waitstaff. They worked hard and I looked like a Super Star! These women do a knock out job and no job is too big for them to handle.

If I could give Ken 10 stars I would. After getting my quote, I assumed the quality of the food would not be good because of the low price. Most caterers overcharge for weddings, but his quote was very affordable. All of the references I got were positive, the taste test exceeded expectations, then the actual food that we got the wedding day was just fantastic. We had about 100 people in Newport from a variety of backgrounds and the overwhelming consensus was that this was the best meal they've had at a wedding and it was healthy. He made us kale salad, quinoa salad, roast chicken, veggie lasagna, roast beef, and mixed veggies. The bar tending staff he brought was great and affordable too. And he brought plates and silverware which saved us a ton. I have no complaints and would enthusiastically recommend Ken for you wedding or other event.

Lori, her partner Sam and her staff made my small event seamless. Lori and I were able to effectively communicate via email and text a half a dozen times in the span of 17 days which proved a tremendous value for me in terms of my time and energy. The team were prompt, professional, friendly, anticipated my needs and stayed on top of everything all night. They met and exceeded all my expectations and received rave reviews from my 50 guests. Chef Jim and Crew Debbie and Jim - I welcome you back anytime. It was so much fun to work with you. Chef Jim - The food and presentation was awesome and abundant. Thank you! Debbie and Jim - thank you for staying on top of the time and making it effortless for me to stay on schedule and stlll be able to enjoy the party with my guests. I look forward to working with all of you again.

Working with Natural Foods was an absolute pleasure. From the initial contact through to the end, it was so easy. I was looking for a caterer for my housewarming party of 60. I really appreciated the focus on sustainable & seasonal. I was able to give Mr. Sawicki the framework of what I was looking for and he created such a unique & varied menu, I really felt like he listened and delivered on the party I was trying to create. My friends raved about the stuffed figs and amazing entrees! (the fish was amazing!) It was so easy to enjoy my party and so stress free. Professional, unique and you could see all the special touches. Natural Foods will be catering more of my parties, now I just need to have more reasons for parties!

Vanessa helped us out during a 50 person cocktail party. She was great! Very pleasant to work with. She prepared appetizers and kept the house in order so my wife and I could enjoy the party. Vanessa was proactive identifying any issues as well. An excellent experience for us, we would definitely hire her again.

Every year we do a thank you bbq to all those who participated in the cystic fibrosis walk for my daughters team. For the last 5 years I have had caterers that were just ok forcing me to look for another. This year fred and celebrations catered the event. It was amazing from the food, to the service. There was not one negative to mention. It was effortless for me which was great. I can't wait to use them again next year!!!! I am so happy not to have to look for any new caterers..Fred you won our hearts from your delicious food and service and the amazing attention to detail.

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

I needed a caterer for an event that I was having, and was given Stacey Blounts name and info. I was very satisfied with his professionalism and his food! He answered any and all questions that I had, he was easy to get in contact with and I never had to wait, he was always on point. He was on time, my guests loved him and his food! He was very personable! He will definitely be hired for my next event!

It was an amazing experience, from start to finish. Her menu selections were perfect for an early Summer Dinner Party for eight. The drinks were out of this world, the appetizers were tremendous, the dinner- truly delicious, and the desert, fantastic! They arrived on time, were unassuming and completely professional and the kitchen was magically spotless when they left. Cheers to Mary and Gathered Table!!

    Amanda catered my wife's 40th birthday party, and she did an exceptional job! She worked with me to create a menu, providing me with a number of different options, including options for guests with dietary restrictions. The food and presentation were great, and our guests were raving about it days afterward! Amanda also was a big help during the party, replenishing the hors d'oeuvres and drink dispersers, refilling plates, cups and napkins, and then cleaning up the kitchen afterward. Amanda took care of it all, and I didn't have to worry about anything! I would highly recommend her for your event!

    I hired Nick's Place, for a retirement party. I can not say enough about their expertise in catering. They took care of everything for me. The food was fresh, delicious, and the presentation was excellent. I would highly recommend Nick's Place. Father and son reassured me everything would be perfect and it was.
